Intentional replantation of mandibular molars was performed in forty patients. Different materials were used for sealing the apex. Healing was assessed by measuring biting force at 2-month intervals for up to 6 months. Gold foil was found to be the best material for apical sealing when improvement in biting force was used as the criterion.
